Her books include the Jake Hines mysteries and the Sarah Burke mysteries.
Here Gunn dreamcasts an adaptation of the latest Srah Burke novel, Denny's Law:
The book is #6 in a police procedural series, which follows a case, of course, and includes interludes with a cobbled-together family: Sarah Burke, my protagonist, a homicide detective; her live-in boyfriend, Will Dietz, also a police officer; her ailing but still-feisty mother, Aggie; and her niece Denny, a bright kid abandoned by her drug-addicted mother, Sarah’s sister.Visit Elizabeth Gunn's website.
Tea Leoni will be perfect as Sarah.
Allison Janney isn’t really old enough to play Tea’s mother, but she can play anybody if she wants to, so let’s get her for Aggie.
Casey Affleck is a little young for Dietz, but add a few wrinkles and he’ll be perfect for the part.
And for Denny I want the sweet/smart child who plays Elizabeth as a child in The Crown – Verity Russell.
